Subject: lazy?
i am listening to the playin>passenger>space and to call this a lazy performance is probably a very bad way to describe this show. on stella blue jerry's voice is rough but that makes it so heartfelt. i really like this show. it does have some patch problems on passenger but the energy makes up for any recording problems. i think we are so spoiled to have all these recordings here and make issues out minutiae imho

Subject: My first show
Been out of the listening loop for some time now. Thought I'd check back in and dig up my first show. Not at all as I so-called remember it, but dear nonetheless. It was a wild and wooly time, and I am glad I got to know the Dead in the 1970's. This show was the beginning of a long and fulfilling love affair. I am grateful.

Poor Jerry, his voice just gives out here and there from what, not really sure, didn't get a chance to ask him! He still does his best pulling some of the vocals off. But at least his heart and soul is still flowing through out his performace.

Anyway, the sound, at times gets wierd, and the overall show is quite mellow (not that is is a bad thing).

I still enjoyed listening to this show as well as the others in this year. As I have been told, that 77 is one of their better years. I am amazed to find thus far (showing my newb here), how many songs have been repeated in the tour. As for me, I don't think this is a bad thing, as each show seems to render a slightly different version of how they did it before.

Overall, I give this show 3 stars.

I stumbled upon this planning to listen to Half Step opener, a few hours later and I am writing a review as Jerry drifts into Stella Blue. I like Jerry's vocals (Peggy-o)in the first set and the jamming is good especially closing with LL>SUPPL

Second set nice Playin-enjoyed the big jam after Passenger might even call it a mini 78 version of later day Space jam that goes into a way laid back Estimated. In fact this whole show just has a great mellow vibe.

Jerry loses his vocal chords during Stella and Donna and Bobby come in for an assist. Luckily that does not stop his guitar, always felt when Garcia hit a roadblock with his vocals he just channeled it into his guitar playing.( That will be the last Garcia tune this night.) They could have called it a night after Prophet and I would still give this show 4/5

might be a tad muddy sounding, but they sound plenty 'on' here. Anyone calling em lazy just doesnt get it.

Terrapin through Sugar Mag is awesome. Jerry leaves briefly during the Playin jam, and when he returns majestically riding on the back of a gigantic sparrow......ah forget it

Subject: Lazy!
I am really dissapointed in this show. There is no energy and the whole show is just plain lazy. The are so many other rockin dead shows out there, this one can be skipped.
